We booked this hotel last minute and was a stab in the dark thanks to Expedia. We wanted a four star close to the port of Tampa and won a bid here. I was disappointed we didn't get the embassy suites down the block at first but we enjoyed our stay here.
The beds at this hotel are great! I don't think I've ever stayed at a westin, so I didn't know what to expect as far as beds go. I found the king bed very comfy as well as the pillows and comforter. That was my favorite thing about this hotel.
It is near the convention center, although there are a couple of others that are closer,so if you are staying there for a convention you'd probably prefer the embassy for convenience. There are a couple of eating spots nearby too.
When we arrived the ladies at check in were very courteous and check in was fast. They even asked us if you had a preference of view, city or water view of the bay. I think the view of the water is probably nicer, the other view faces the convention center.
